Vine Lake Cemetery, Medfield, Massachusetts
Well, you'd think I was stalking Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings. All of his ancestors keep turning up every where I look. The first hit I got on Mr. Henry Smith of Medfield was Randy's post on his "Smith Ancestors of Medfield and Dedham."
Randy's page says that this Henry Smith (I'm sure there are countless many) was born 16 December 1680 in Medfield and died as indicated above. It also mentions that Henry married Ruth Barber 01 September 1730, also in Medfield.
The Genealogical and family history of the state of New Hampshire (Vol. 4) adds this:
"He was a selectman and held other offices in the town [Medfield]. He was married February 20, 1703, to Deborah Pratt, who was born 1684, daughter of John and Rebecca (Colburn) Pratt. She died August 5, 1706, and he was married (second), March 4, 1708, to Mary Adams. She was born August 4, 1681, daughter to Jonathan and Mary (Ellis) Adams, and died February 23, 1725. Henry Smith was married (third) September 1, 1730, to Ruth Barber, who was born March 5, 1696, daughter of Zachariah and Abigail (Ellis) Barber. His children were: Daniel, Mary, Henry, Jonathan, Sarah, Benoni, Ruth, Moses and Asa."
